Riedel's newest introduction, the Sommeliers Black Tie series, marks the celebration of Claus Josef Riedel's unveiling of the first Sommeliers Burgundy Grand Cru glass in 1958. Riedel's varietal specific wine glass concept has changed the world of wine drinking around the globe, by highlighting the effect that size and shape have on the aroma and flavor perception of the wine. This special new Black Tie series incorporates the Sommeliers line's classic shapes into gorgeous mouth-blown stemware, all accented in black. This Riedel Black Tie Riesling Grand Cru glass features the same classic shape of its Sommelier series counterpart, perfectly capturing the nuances of the fine wine it was designed for. The bowl rests on a clear stem, accented by a beautiful black base, creating an elegant dressed up appeal, and is packed in a handsome single gift tube.

Riedel's Grand Wine Glass Collection was born in 1958 when the "Pokal Hoch" was first exhibited at the WORLD EXHIBITION in Brussels. The glass was instantly awarded with a "Grand Prix" for its creative and striking design. Shortly after, New York's Museum of Modern Art selected it for their permanent collection as a significant 1960s design.

50 years later we celebrate the anniversary of this iconic glass by presenting "SOMMELIERS BLACK TIE". Based on the timeless original shapes, these classic and elegant glasses feature a tall black stem on the varietally specific red wine glasses and a black base with crystal stem on the white wine glasses.

Claus Riedel started his career as young glass designer creating this magnum opus based on the request of Conte Odazio, an Italian nobleman and business partner who said to Claus: "I am tired to drink my fine Piedmont red wines from small glasses!" Based on the functionality of this truly unique work of art, Claus began a lifetime exploration to discover step by step the effect of "shape and size" on the aroma and flavor perception of the wine.
